I didn't notice a slow startup but also not paid much attention to it.
To me, Geany on Windows always felt slow. But I also never work with a
real Windows box, just a VM over RDP.
But the plugin list is really slow. This must be related to some of the
dependencies. Without having deeper debugged, I would blame WebkitGTK,
just because it is so huge.

Release binaries will have the fix, of course.

Thanks, fixed in
as part of #386.

The error message on load without any dictionaries is a known problem
but I didn't get to fix it yet.
But what does "miss all dictionaries" mean? There are no dictionaries
installed by default. Did you had an existing config with a patch to
dictionaries which don't work any longer? This would be bad.

There is a resources folder in share\webkitgtk-1.0\resources but it
doesn't contain anything like this.
No idea where these files normally would come from :(.

Confirmed, same here. But no idea what's causing this.

I actually noticed the same problem on Friday morning, but didn't get to
debug/fix it then. Anyway, you did it yourself. For the archives, see

Thanks for the feedback.
